In the Crescendo, high gains can be used to optimally drive subsequent AD converters. Should the VU meter therefore deflect too far, you can reduce the displayed level by 10 dB.
The phantom power required for the use of condenser microphones is activated with the 48V switch.
Turn the polarity of a microphone signal 180° by activating the polarity reversal switch.
For loud input signals (including line signals) the input sensitivity can be reduced by 20 dB.
The gain is adjusted by a 12-step switch. The pre-amplification ranges from +18 dB to +70 dB.
